tempting on first blush to say well, it's a huge negative for obama. but i think when you look at history, what history suggests is that people tend to judge a president based on the sort of medium-term history. think about al gore in 2000. the economy was great in 2000. but it was also slowing sharply. and that made it really hard for al gore to take credit for how well the economy was doing. because it was discordant with all of the news that was coming out. and so similarly this year or maybe i should say on the flip side this year, as weak as the economy is, it has been improving over the last year. and so when people talk about are you better off than four years ago, if you look at history, if you talk to poll spers-- pollsters most people seem to think of the question as were you better off than you were maybe a year ago. when you look at it that way, the economy although it's by no means a big positive for obama which is why romney is talking about it and obama isn't, it's not clear that it's a huge stone around the president's neck. >> what's wrong with the u.s. economy? >
